The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. Psalms 19:7
If we believe all the credence given to modern claims we are living under greater stress than ever before. There are more seminars, conferences, discussion, talks, blog posts and social media articles, books, pills and therapies to deal with the problem of stress. But the problem doesn’t seem to go away. Now wonder many of us believe we are ‘stressaholics’
And it’s contagious. We join the crowd and painfully endure the symptoms of our stress.
Stress can be a strength. A rope under pressure, an unyielding bolt of bar. Under tremendous strain lies purpose and power. The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road. If we believe that our anxieties, conflicts, upsets, distress, spiritual turmoil and selfishness. All causes of stress (SIN)
Fighting against God’s signposts in our lives is sure to add to our stress levels. But, compliance to His signposts will strengthen us. In the Bible many were called upon to suffer much. Resting in Him, relaxing in Hiswill, finding peace and tranquility. They had the strength to overcome their stress. So can we!
Jesus said John 16:33 “I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
Relying on Him helps us to overcome our ‘stressaholism.’
Lord, I want to strech myself fully out to be yours; let this be my mst enjoyable stress. Strengthen me, in this excercise, so I can resist the distress of deteat by default.
